More quilts that I like

If anyone knows the names of the quilt makers please let me know. I find it rather odd that they don't put the makers name next to the quilt. Anyway these are more quilts that I like from the show.

Frieda...that last one looks like a piece by Laura Kemshall (of Laura and Linda and the City and Guilds courses in the UK)..... there is a picture in the latest Thr3fold journal (costs a fortune to order here in the US, but worth it....) that is similar, and I recently, somewhere on the web, saw a video of Laura starting to paint a white wholecloth just like this one would have been (prior to the painting)

Cheers, Sarah

They don't put the names on so that the judges can't see who made the quilts before judging (that's also why they keep the catalogues tucked away until after the prizewinners have been named:)

You had do walk with the catalog through the exhibition ;-)) I can understand that they don't want you to recognize immediately the maker of the quilt. But I also miss the explanations for the quilts. All of them has a story. I know that I don't have to see the same message in the quilt like the quilter herself. But I like to compare my sensation (?right word) wiht the real statement.

69 was made by Laura Kemshall. The other quilt I remember too, but I don't know the number, so I can't tell you ;-))
The exhibition was a lot of fun, and it was also wonderfull to see you and Laura in reality.

Best wishes from Cologne, Germany
